About the Author

George Hagen is the author of two novels for adults. The Laments—Washington Post bestseller and recipient of the William Saroyan International Prize for writing—has been compared to the work of John Irving and Ann Tyler and described by Publishers Weekly as “a funny, touching novel about the meaning of family.” Tom Bedlam was called “a Victorian three-decker novel [that] shines with contemporary clarity and moves at the speed of The Sopranos” by the Los Angeles Times. Hagen had lived on three continents by the time he was 12. The father of three children, he now lives in Brooklyn. For more information, visit
